IT ALL BEGAN WITH EVE 



^■'■^■n&"'i4 



We hear all the time of the things women do, 
Rebecca Gratz, Emma Lazarus, to name just two. 
It's hard for some of us to perceive. 
That all this began with Eve. 



Iss?«' 



From history's dawn to the present day, 
A guiding light in every way. 
Was woman, and would you believe. 
It all began with Eve. 

In every field she's played vital parts, 
In science, drama and the arts; 
Highest honors have been hers to achieve, 
And it all began with Eve. 

Aside from these there is another. 
She, most important, is called Mother. 
The pillar to which her family cleaves. 
Mothers also began with Eve. 



Jewish women throughout the ages. 

Were able partners to our great sages. 

Honor and Reverence from the world they receive, 

And it all began with Eve. 

Rebeccah Handel

Dusk: 

The melodic chant of the ritual benediction over the kindling of the 
Sabbath candles haunts the air, heralding the approach of the holy Queen. 
Each candle, a sentinel of time, shines proudly, beaming forth a tiny ray of 
light which glows as if with a secret vision, casting mysterious shadows whose 
vague shapes seem to contain the hidden secrets of the world. Look, deep in 
those flickering shadows lies the symbol of all the Jewish women who have 
passed through the annals of history kindling the lamp of humanity, shedding 
light on the seeds of civilization, reaping the fertile fruits to benefit all man- 
kind. 
Dark: 

The lonely wail of Ghettos, of grief beneath oppression, can be heard 
throughout the world. The ominous cloud of death hangs heavy over the 
Jewish people who cry out beneath the deluge of terror. The sparks of love 
inherent in every woman cannot be extinguished beneath this torment of 
tears; instead they wield together in a flame of hope, searing the bitter fruits 
of war and strife and blazing a path towards the promise of a land, a nation, 
a dream. 
Dawn: 

The vibrant throb of life swells into harmony; the birth of a new day 
floods the sky with light. Ever since the miracle which first set the pulse of 
the world in motion, Jewish women have brought us the guiding lights of 
prophetesses, the wisdom of Judges, the spirits of warriors, and the encom- 
passing love of motherhood. Unobtrusively, they have endowed the treasures 
of the world with lavish gifts, leaving an indelible imprint upon countless 
vocations ranging from art to science, from education to housekeeping. 

With pure hearts and willing hands they have hewed compassion out of 
the rough stone of man's intolerance to man, smoothing the jagged edges of 
prejudice, molding destiny with the creation of brotherhood, the world's 
promise of peace. 
Prophesy: 

The great faith of all womanhood has served as an incentive throughout 
the centuries, guiding the paths of the preceding generations who have stum- 
bled along the byways of life in quest of an ideal. 

This great faith which stems from every woman is the "light of the 
world," and, like a shining beacon, it will continue to light the path for 
posterity down through the ages.

Saran Bernnardt 




One of the greatest talents that one can possess is the ability to convey 
thoughts and emotions to others. This is the rare quality that is to be found 
in all great actors. This trait requires an understanding of human emotions 
which is often brought about by personal conflicts and ordeals. Such was the 
case with Sarah Bernhardt, in the opinion of some, the greatest actress who 
ever lived. 

Sarah was born in Paris, France, in the year 1845. She was of Jewish 
descent. At twelve, her parents had her baptized, and upon her own request 
she was committed to a convent. 

At the age of 13, she entered the Conservatoire. There she won second 
prize for comedy and for drama. This inspired her to pursue an acting career. 
At seventeen, Sarah made her debut as an actress at the Comedie Francaise. 
After her debut she came to the decision that her life's desire was acting. 

She lived for the moments when she could stand on the stage and hear 
the applause of the audience, the great mass of people whom she took close 
to her heart at every performance. Sarah found it easy to captivate the audi- 
ence after a short time, for the spell of her acting was rare and beautiful. 

Performances multiplied in number, and her fame spread. The power of 
her emotional acting, her magnetic personality, and her "voix d'or" soon made 
Sarah Bernhardt recognized unquestionably as being the greatest actress of 
her day. After breaking ties with the Academie Francaise, she started on a 
world tour. 

In 1914, The Legion of Honour was conferred upon her. An accident 
necessitated the amputation of Sarah's leg. Nevertheless, when the World 
War came she played at the front, toured America and went to London. 

Most actors are known only for the moment. When they die, their fame 
dies. When Sarah Bernhardt died, in Paris, in the year 1923, her fame con- 
tinued to live. She disproved the theory of the heartless public. Sarah will 
always be remembered as a courageous woman who was endowed with the 
power of bringing whatever emotions she wished to the hearts of others. She 
made them forget their heartaches, and brought them into a world of fantasy, 
enjoyable to all. Unfortunately, she could not escape the reality of her own 
misfortunes. 

Just as Sarah Bernhardt did not forsake her public at the time of her 
sorrow, we shall not forsake her memory for a long time to come.

You and I have often hummed the haunting and hopeful tune of "Ani- 
Maamin," and many are the times that we whirled deliriously to the rhythm 
of the Horah, or pitched in joyously to the Zmirot around the Shabbat table. 
Yet, have we ever stopped to wonder at the origin of this music ? As long as 
it fills our hearts with joy, or brings a reminder of our glorious history and 
accurately expresses our emotions in beauty and splendor and sadness, this 
is all that matters. 

However, there is a great satisfaction in knowing that not only the un- 
known composers of these Nigunim were Jewish, but for us girls, there is 
the added pat-on-the-back of discovering that a large slice of this musical 
genius is composed of Jewish women. 

Since Miriam the Prophetess led the Daughters of Israel in song while 
courageously crossing the Red Sea, Jewish women composers and musicians 
have expressed their hopes and anguish, and translated their thoughts into 
immortal music. 

Jewish music has captured the colors of the skies beneath which our 
people have wandered. French, Russian, German— there is a dash, a sparkling 
of every land, in the gay and sad notes of our songs. But the leitmotif is its 
unique quality, the individual emphasis that singles it out from all the other 
music in the world. I am speaking, of course, of the "Yiddish touch." 

How can I best describe this "touch" peculiar to our music? Perhaps, if 
you think back to all the Jewish music you have heard, you will grasp what 
I mean. Do you recall that quality of sadness, elusive and tantalizing, that note 
of joy that carries a future promise rather than a past regret, the mingling 
of tears and smiles ? That is the "Yiddish touch." 

Like our people, our music has the heart of youth and the head of age. 
We are the oldest in wisdom, learning and experience. But ever, and at all 
times, we have sung with the conviction, enthusiasm, and open heart of eternal 
youth. Our music is a conglomeration of our experiences. 

We suffered— it is in our music. We hoped— that is in our music too. We 
never despaired— our history proves that, and our music accents it.

Jewisn Women Tnrougnout tne Ages 



The physical and mental similarities and disparities between men and 
women are carefully noted in Jewish literature and are given full consider- 
ation by Jewish law. The Bible's many descriptions and praises of women's 
sterling qualities are well known, especially through the acrostic poem in 
Proverbs which is recited every Friday evening by the husband in honor of 
his wife. 

Women were the first to evince willingness to accept the Torah. They 
did not participate in the sins of the worship of the golden calf and in the 
sending of the spies. It was through the merits of women that the Israelites 
were redeemed from Egypt. Two books of the Bible, Ruth and Esther, are 
named after women. 

The main function of women was that of guardian of the home. "The 
home is the real temple of women ; the education of her children is her divine 
service, and her family is her congregation." It was her duty to supervise all 
domestic matters, the maintenance of the Kashruth, the home celebration of 
the Sabbath and festivals, the early education of her sons and her daughters. 
The wife also encouraged her husband to study Torah and engage in con- 
tinuous study. 

As a rule, women never studied Torah as academically as men, but by 
constant practice they became familiar with the main body of the everyday 
laws. Many women are recorded as being Torah scholars in the fullest sense 
of the word. The legal opinion of Beruriah, wife of Meir, is quoted with 
deference in the Talmud. The wife of Jacob ben Judah Mizrahi continued to 
direct his Yeshivah after his death. The daughter of the Exilarch Samuel ben 
Eli of Baghdad and Miriam Shapira both taught Torah to male students from 
whom they were separated by a curtain. Another Miriam was one of those 
who brought about deliverance from Egyptian bondage ; Achaliah and Salome 
Alexandria reigned over the Jews. During the medieval period there were a 
number of women scribes, translators and publishers. 

In the nineteenth century the "Maid of Ludomir" functioned as a Hassidic 
Rebbe and had many adherents. Other worthy women were Jael, Judith and 
Hannah. In modern times we see the growth of Zionist and religious move- 
ments. 

Thus we see that Jewish women throughout the ages have functioned in 
the past, present and will continue to do so in the future.

Dear Dorothy Dix, 

My teacher says I'll fail my English regent; in fact all my 
teachers think I'm an idiot. Mr. Lilker agrees but says it's not 
my fault (bad training). Now, I don't think I'm an idiot and 
my friends don't think I'm an idiot. What should I do ? 

A Befuddled Senior 
School politicians become school janitors. . . . Why is everybody so tired on

words— don't, just study 50. . . . Bebee changes her name to Sue (Brat). . . . 
Dr. Lewin senses how much we miss Mr. Hoffman so we get back our fourth

Good evening Mr. and Mrs. Universe: 

Tonight a great event is taking place in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Of course, we 
are referring to the first convention of leading Jewish women of the day. We 
switch you now to the editors of the news section of our paper, Hadassah Kain 
and Aline Borowsky who are at this moment in the sh'aylon papered room of 
the Hoffman building in Tel-Aviv. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, we truly wish you could all be here with us to- 
night. The excitement is overpowering, and everyone who is anyone is here 
with us in this room. Naturally it will be impossible for us to speak with all 
those present but we'll do our best. There on our left is the great artist Fran- 
cine, better known as the second Rembrandt, and to her right the illustrious 
Hadassah Teitz who was nominated for the Nobel prize on the basis of her 
new found cure for the common cold. There's a group of people in the middle 
of the room; let's listen to their conversation. They seem to be discussing 
Shirley Sonnenfeld's newly published book on modern Israeli literature. She 
seems to have completely captured the attention of the eminent mathemati- 
cian, Rochelle Kellman, and Esther "Walkin, Professor of languages at Tel- 
Aviv College. Stop— we interrupt this program for a brief announcement. We 
have just learned that Rebecca Cohen and Rebeccah Handel have become the 
first two people to successfully reach the moon. It is especially significant that 
this happened on the eve of this Jewish Women's Convention. Congratula- 
tions! We switch you back to Tel- Aviv. 

The hall has quieted down. The Chairman and "Vice Chairman of this 
affair, Cecily Stolnitz and Sura Schreiber respectively, have now entered the 
room and people are beginning to take their seats. Oh, but wait, no Conven- 
tion could be complete without the style added to it by those famous designers, 
Kushner and Nusbaum, and here they are now. Tonight we have with us 
the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra. As I look at the orchestra I notice that 
great pianist Marcia Margulies. You know that this orchestra is the only one 
that has a chalil section. The one person responsible for this is a woman 
known to all of us— Anna Wolf. First on our program are those three musical 
comedy stars, Rikki Klein, Rhoda Lerner and Edith Freier. The audience is 
quiet as the program begins. . . . Weren't they wonderful ? Just listen to that 
ovation. Next on the program is Nora, the successor to Arthur Murray. . . . 
What applause! A fifteen minute intermission will now follow. We switch 
you to our reporter, Pearl Kidansky, on the opposite side of the auditorium. 



48 



Thank you Aline and Hadassah. Good evening ladies and gentlemen. 
Well, this is a great night for all of us. As I look about me at the audience 
I see many well known celebrities and many personal friends. In the front I 
see Barbara Gross, creator of the character "Sue," known and loved through- 
out the world. Next to her I see Debra Simanowitz, noted decoder for the 
F.B.I. Next to her are Anne Rosenbaum and Rochelle Rothberg. These two 
women are great philanthropists whose money made this convention possible. 
Near them I see my good friends Rosalie Rabinowitz, Roslyn Hoffman and 
Judith Lapidus, the noted authority on opera of the Nineteenth Century. Sit- 
ting directly in back of her are the officers of the Crown Heights Women's 
organization, Gloria Frank, Devora Cohen, Audrey Katz, Rachel Youlus, 
Harriet Bassiur and Vita Sladowsky. Oh, I see the noted historians, Debra 
Winter, Florence Leibowitz and Saranne Eskolsky. Speaking to them are 
the "Miss Israel" winners of the past three years, Denah Goldman, Diana 
Bernstein and Adele Levine. I just noticed some of my friends from the vari- 
ous kibbutzim in Israel, Renee Kirschner, Esther Presler and Leah Botwinick. 
Foreign correspondent Ruth Reutlinger is covering this convention for Asso- 
ciated News. Miss Reutlinger is able to catch every word here because she 
learned stenography from Sema Edelman. Miss Edelman recently compiled 
a new system of shorthand designed to enable the writer to catch 250 words 
per minute. 

From Bnai Brak we have with us tonight Dina Horowitz and Eva Oster- 
reicher.. Right now I am waving to Adelaide Strahlberg and Claire Solomon, 
noted biologists. I hope they see me. Oh, I just received the signal and the 
intermission is about over. Miss Judyta Bernstein has just announced that the 
first lecturers are about to be given. One on Anthropology will be given by 
Dr. Marcia Ginsberg. The second, on Progressive Education will be by Pro- 
fessor Saralie Zeitz of Stern College, the third on Modern Literature by Pro- 
fessor Betty Goldberg also of Stern College. Since we are not broadcasting 
these lectures we will switch you to the Betty Friedman Show which is now 
in progress. 

This is the World Jewish Women's Convention in Tel-Aviv signing off 
for the night.

W^hat Central Girls Are Made Of 



An uninformed gent once, long ago, 

On the subject of girls thought there was little to know, 

Wrote that a girl contains "sugar and spice," 

And thoughtfully added "all that is nice." 

However, this rhyme no longer holds true, 
If you see a Central girl, you'll change your view. 
Her assets and charms take too long to compute; 
Ask any fellow — he won't dispute. 

A Central girl is curved and neat. 
Not too much bone, and not too much meat, 
For what can compare to three flights of stair. 
When a girl has pounds she'd like to pare. 



To make out well in this fair school, 
A girl must surpass the golden rule. 
To get her 90's she must provide. 
Hard work, study and favors on the side. 

A Central girl's charitable; I'll prove to you, 
She'll give money and time when you ask her to. 
But first take heed, for your own protection, 
'Cause the money goes to the yearbook collection. 

My reputation I will stake. 
To say that Central takes the cake. 
In conclusion, though, let me state. 
Pardon if I exaggerate. 

Debbie Simanowitz & Florence Leibowitz 



50 




Dear Central, 

We've been together for four long years, 

Through thick and thin, laughter and tears. 

I suppose I should say I've had lots of fun. 

Which is true, I'll admit, now I've begun. 

With high ideals and a lofty dream. 

In every eye a hopeful gleam. 

From the five boroughs and beyond too. 

For education we came to you. 

We came here that first day of school. 

And were promptly herded to the chapel — er, shul. 

Programs given, classes assigned. 

Into two strongholds we were combined. 

Four years have passed and now we are older. 

We're much more weary but very much bolder. 

We're wise to the ways of our pedagogues, 

Whom we thought of as tyrants and demagogues. 

We've had lots of laughs and shed lots of tears, 

It was a long hard climb, these four years. 

Some of us climbed with the greatest ease. 

Many of us stumbled and "skinned our knees." 

You've caused us many worries and cares, 

Central, and many the time you gave us a scare. 

Finals and such were pains in the neck. 

With their end who wasn't a wreck? 

Not only the students but the teachers too, 

And why was this? Because of you. 

We've come to eighth term and are about to leave. 

It has come so soon it's hard to believe. 

The time has dragged and the time has flown. 

But it has been a pleasure you to have known. 

When the last class ends and we hear the final bell. 

We'll leave with fond memories. 

Sincerely, 

Rebeccah Handel
